Utterly Charming

Charms, pendants and pins to suit any taste

“This area of diamond jewelry is becoming more free-form,” Susan Michel of Susan Michel Ltd. in Flushing, NY, says of charms, pendants and pins. “Literal interpretations are becoming a thing of the past.” Charms express individuality, pendants show versatility by converting to pins and pins create drama. These three diamond categories make gift-selling easy. Quiz your customer about hobbies, personality and family ties to find where her interests lie.
